[LLVMdev] LLVM intrinsic for SSE ANDPS instruction

I think the bitcast operation is rather painless to use. And if you want to be able to execute it on a float vector you could try putting the and operation in a function with inline linkage and that would be all that's needed to convert over and back. BTW, bitcasting is a no-op conversion in actual code.
